Burn permit suspension lifted



The burn permit suspension has been lifted in Sonoma County, as well as in a number of other counties.

Cal Fire officials advise that those possessing current and valid agriculture and residential burn permits can now resume burning on permissible burn days. Inspections may be required for burns other than agriculture burns. This can be verified by contacting your local Air Quality Management District.

Residents in Sonoma County wishing to burn can find out if it is a permissive burn day prior to burning by calling the Northern Sonoma County Air Pollution District at 433-5911.

Burning requirements:

• Only dry, natural vegetative material such as leaves, pine needles and tree trimmings may be burned.

• The burning of trash, painted wood or other debris is not allowed.

• Do not burn on windy days.

• Piles should be no larger than four feet in diameter and in height. You can add to pile as it burns down.

• Clear a 10-foot diameter down to bare soil around your piles.

• Have a shovel and a water source nearby.

• An adult is required to be in attendance of the fire at all times.

Safe residential pile burning of forest residue by landowners is a crucial tool in reducing fire hazards. State, Federal and Local land management and fire agencies will also be utilizing this same window of opportunity to conduct prescribed burns aimed at improving forest health and resiliency on private and public lands.
